‘Deadwood’ Creator David Milch Diagnosed With Alzheimer’s
David Milch, the creator of “Deadwood,” revealed his Alzheimer’s diagnosis in an interview published Tuesday.

“As best I understand it, which is minimally, I have a deterioration in the organization of my brain,” Milch told Vulture. “And it’s progressive. And in some ways discouraging. In more than some ways — in every way I can think of.”

Beginning five years ago, people around him noticed instances of “imperfect recall and tardy recall and short temper,” Milch said. “I became more and more of an acquired taste.”

He also struggled with his writing process, which was characterized by “a generalized incertitude and a growing incapacity.” About a year ago, Milch finally underwent a brain scan and received the diagnosis.

Milch created the acclaimed HBO Western series “Deadwood,” which aired from 2004 to 2006. He also wrote “Deadwood: The Movie,” which is a continuation of the original series and will see most of the original cast return,

How Sad Is Avengers: Endgame? It Made Chris Evans "Cry 6 Times," So We're Basically Screwed

  • Popsugar
If there's anything Marvel fans are well-versed in, it's knowing that their favorite heroes are always in imminent danger. Since Iron Man first graced our screens back in 2008, fans of the Avengers have learned to check out every possibility for death, and prepare themselves for fatalities. And even though it felt like Avengers: Infinity War was the peak level of devastation that Marvel could reach, there's no doubt we're in for more. The premiere of Avengers: Endgame is upon us, and apparently the film is enough to make Captain America get emotional. Like really emotional.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter back in March, actor Chris Evans opened up about seeing the upcoming fourth installment of the Avengers franchise, and he seemed overwhelmed by how good the film actually is. "Uh, it's - I mean - it's a good one," he said. "It's a real good one. I saw,

Game of Thrones: The Night King Invades Winterfell in the Preview For Next Week's Episode
All hell is about to break loose on Game of Thrones. No, seriously - we've seen the Battle of Hardhome, and the Battle of the Bastards, but season eight's Battle of Winterfell promises to be the bloodiest, longest, and most intense clash of enemies on the HBO fantasy series to air thus far.

The second episode in the season essentially serves to gear up all our favorite characters for the massive fight against the Night King's undead army. We see Arya do someone something, uh, very exciting, as well as Lady Brienne of Tarth finally becoming a knight. And, next Sunday, we might have to watch them all die. Lovely!

The preview for the third episode begins with a voice-over from Mvp Sansa Stark, who declares that, "The most heroic thing we can do now is look the truth in the face." Then, everyone from Jon Snow, to Daenerys, to Theon,

Will Smith Battles Against Himself - Literally - in the Action-Packed Trailer For Gemini Man
If Jordan Peele's Us had been an action-packed sci-fi flick rather than a gruesome, mind-bending horror film, then perhaps it would've looked a little closer to the trailer for Ang Lee's Gemini Man.

The film stars Will Smith as Henry, a highly trained expert-level hitman who's getting up there in age. Despite all his skills, nothing seems to matter when it comes to facing off against his latest opponent, who seems to know all his moves before he makes them. How? Because he is him.

In addition to heavy hitters like Smith and Owen, the film stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Benedict Wong, and Douglas Hodge. Watch the trailer for Gemini Man above before it hits theaters on Oct. 11.
